    How to install the prebuilt manifold

    STEP 1: Pick a Location

    • Select a location to install Manifold, refer to Step 2 for proper water flow configuration position.
    • If retrofitting, cut a 11" length of the main return piping where the bypass will be installed.

    Please Note: The Manifold needs 1.5" of pipe on each side for glue.

    STEP 2: Select Gate Valve Manifold Orientation

    • It can be installed either left-to-right or right-to-left to match your waterflow configurations.
    • Just align the directional flow arrows with the direction of water flow.

    STEP 3: Connect to Pool Plumbing

    • Using a suitable PVC primer & cement, install and connect the Gate Valve Manifold to the 11" cut section of pool plumbing.

    STEP 4: Connect to System & Set Gate Valve

    • Connect the blue Air Tubing from the Clear Comfort System's Flowmeter to the Manifold’s Venturi.
    • Open the Flowmeter's adjustable knob by turning it counter-clockwise.
    • Turn on the circulation pump. Adjust the Gate Valve Manifold's knob until the Flowmeter meets the required flow rate of 5-7LPM.
    • You may need to fine tune using the Flowmeter's knob.
